Deadline for proposals extended: Midnight Dec 19, 2021 Central US time

Theme: Listening During a Time of Change

The International Listening Association (ILA) invites competitive papers, panels, and poster proposals for the 43rd  Annual ILA Convention, Wednesday, March 30 to Saturday, April 2, 2022 at the Crowne Plaza Aire Hotel in Bloomington, MN. After thoughtful consideration and comments from many of our members, we will be following a traditional convention format while remaining flexible to meet changing pandemic condition.

Since ILA has not held a traditional convention since 2019, the 2022 convention will include times for "listening reconnection" groups for our attendees. More information about these groups will be provided at a later date.  Please see details below regarding some online programming that will be included for those who cannot attend face-to-face.

Convention paper, poster and panel proposals that explore the multi-disciplinary applications, research, teaching or training, and performance of listening are welcomed. Submissions regarding how listening practice or research was conducted or changed during the COVID-19 pandemic are encouraged. Submissions that explore the convention theme, “Listening During a Time of Change" are especially encouraged utilizing the many applications of “change." Additionally, typical submissions examining listening in various contexts are welcomed, e.g. Education, Business, Healthcare, Storytelling, and Relationships--just to mention a few. Practicums, workshops, short courses, or the new "Unposter" Poster may be submitted and are detailed on the attached submission form.

In order to make some convention programming available online, up to six presenters will be specially recognized to present an Encore/Spotlight Presentation of their program via Zoom on either Saturday April 23 or Saturday April 30, 2022.
